This is the first year that the event has been relocated to a separate venue since the pairing with the Architectural Digest Show. I wasn't fond of the space although I had to travel through it during daylight hours. Perhaps at night, when the main events occurred, the curtains dividing the space and the large windows open to the view of all the floating debris in the Hudson wouldn't have been so visible or disturbing.
Given that, sponsorship by industry biggies has made for a very professional show. Ralph Lauren chose to focus on their line of paints where the paint cans were tucked into shelves in brick walls.
Who wouldn't want to lounge on the banquettes in Benjamin Moore's café designed by Tyler Wisler. The soft green tufted seats and Parisian wicker café chairs were the perfect setting for coffee and romance.
